I wrote a really long response to u sf, and for somereason it disappeared!
N e way, it boiled down to this
I'm 25 and i constantly tell myself that due to my illness and the circumstances i've been thru w/this bag and so forth in the last 2 years, that i don't want kids or marriage. But i know i tell myself these things because i know that there's a possiblity these things wont happen (i'm glad you have someone in your life who loves and cares about
u no matter what).
I was saying how i have no sisters, but i have a bunch of female cousins whom are like my sisters. We all grew up together. And all of them are either married and/or have children, even the younger ones! Imagine how i felt when my younger cousins graduated from college b4 me! all b/c i was sick. I did eventually finish, but things like this have been a constant reminder throughout my life of how this illness has changed and affected my life.
But i'm a firm believer in the philosophy that "What God has for you is for you!), and no circumstance, age, or sickness can take that away from you. You don't know what's in store for your future!
Bsides smile! 32 isnt old! my mom has a few friends who waited until their early 40's to have children...wouldnt necessarily be my choice, but its not uncommon. You have time.....
